It's looking like it might not be too hard.  It looks like  
Bundle.findEntries("","*.class", true) will get us what we want and  
since we do all the ASM parsing in the constructor, we should  
theoretically be able to get away with just a new constructor or more  
likely a subclass.  Might run into a snag in regards to classloading  
and lifecycle -- as long as the classloader is available when the  
'find' methods are invoked after the ASM parse, it should be workable.

Hoping to get a chance to take a look at this next week.
